The dining room in our little round house is tiny. In fact it’s so small it’s hanging on the wall in our kitchen 😎
Yup, we hung our dining room on the wall and turned it into a work of art to save space.
Okay, before I show you how easy it is to hang your small dining room up and turn it into a work of art, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram. And don’t forget to subscribe so you’ll never miss a post!
What you need
- Two fold-up chairs
- A piece of wood. I had one cut at the hardware store that measures 70cm x 50cm (27.5″ x 20″)
- Heavy-duty T-hinge and Rawl bolts
- Craft paint in a color of your choice
- Large cup hooks
- Adjustable chrome worktop leg
- Stencil (optional)
The Don’t Mind the Mess table was made using a piece of pine, measuring 55 cm x 45 cm. It was sealed with a white primer before adding the decal and covered with three layers of Annie Sloan Chateau Grey. Once the paint was dry, we simply removed the decal and gave the table a few coats of clear wax to protect. The table is attached to the wall using a T-hinge and rawl bolts. My ever careful hubby wanted to make sure we could dance on this table 😀
We found the chairs on sale at Mr P Home and painted them a vibrant lime green and hung them using white square cup hooks.
I used this pic we took in our kitchen as inspiration for the painting of the three lime green cups.
Now we have a dining room that’s a functional, space saving, work of art when it’s not in use.
And when we’re ready to eat, we simply take down the chairs, flip up the table and dine in our own little bistro cafe. The table top is kept upright with a chrome worktop leg. It’s been painted lime green to match the chairs. You can get worktop legs at most hardware stores and they are fully adjustable.
I’d love to know what you think of the idea of hanging a dining room on the wall. And if you have any other space saving tricks for a small space let me know. Oh before I forget, here’s the piccy of the dining room wall before we turned it into a work of art.
Such a waste of space, right!!? Anyways, hope you have a beautiful week, filled with lots of crafty goodness.
